Institutional repositories (IRs) commonly contain published articles, book chapters, working papers, and other scholarly work that can be accessed for free, created by faculty and other staff, and hosted by the institution in question, typically a university or college.
The Digital Commons Network collects the content from many of these IRs that use the bePress "Digital Commons" platform so that the works can be searched together despite being hosted on hundreds of different sites.
Laurier Library uses the "Digital Commons" platform for our Scholars Commons @ Laurier IR, and much of our content is available through the Digital Commons Network.
